Southern Wine Route

Discover Hobart and beyond...

Hobart, Tasmania’s capital city, is located on the Derwent River in Tasmania’s south.

Vineyards are closer to Hobart than any other capital city, including the Derwent Valley, Coal River Valley and the Huon / Channel wine growing areas.

South of Hobart are the clear waters and stunning coastline of Bruny Island, the fertile soils of the Huon Valley where vineyards and orchards nestle side-by-side and the picturesque beauty of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel.

East of Hobart are the wineries and vineyards of the Coal River Valley and the Tasman National Park with its spectacular coastline and historic convict sites.

To the west is the Derwent Valley, where the road follows the beautiful Derwent River through rows of poplars and on to Tasmania’s central highlands and the grandeur of Lake St Clair and the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.

North from Hobart, the Midland Highway heads to Launceston. Dubbed the Heritage Highway, it offers many opportunities to enjoy Tasmania’s heritage past, with homesteads and country cottages reflecting the state’s early colonial history.

This stunning region offers arts and culture, food and drink, wilderness, heritage, with wildlife and waterways ever present, yet it is the experiences from one moment to the next that will ensure you never forget Tasmania’s south.
